Hey all,

I'm trying to gather all known locations running or planning to run the game. So far I have:

Arcade Galactic, West Valley City, UT (still in transit)
GamePlay, Marley Station Mall, Glen Burnie, MD
Mikado Game Center Europe, Tudela, Spain (open April)
Sugoi, Helsinki, Finland
Two Plumbers Brewery + Arcade, St. Charles, MO

I'm trying to gather all this in the easily searchable Zenius -I- vanisher.com Arcade Database (select "Aka & Blue" from the series dropdown and hit search) as the games go online.

Drama aside, the majority of the western kit collectors will not 1cc or get a decent score with this in the first few months anyway :lol:

The only western vid so far is a credit feed with no strategy. I doubt that will get taken down.
jaaaajajajajajajja, fuc**** reality, western collectors are one-armed xd

I'm really tempted to rotate the monitor. It's a bit too small in hori mode.

Yes, none of the weight or risk of a CRT, it just takes bloody ages.

I've yet to even make it to the stage 2 boss.

I wouldn't be so mad if I could see what's hitting me. Bullets are both too fast and too hard to see.

Sir, i‘m all but a pro gamer, i am what you would call a puss, but this feels somewhat unbalanced hard, like someone changed the bullet speed from „fun“ to „spam“.

The game for now is between the red line of “Fun and frustrating” :D

As example , my first runs at Dodonpachi were much more on the “Fun line” :awe:
